Rachel Fenton said...

They look just like daisies. Beautiful - what's their habitat?

They are so beautiful. Also they are us as our span is brief, relatively.

hi rick - it's a strange thing but i don't know much about photography! i can tell you that i took this picture with an olympus e420 dslr if that helps!!! steven

steven said...

weaver and that's the thing with beauty - so transient. steven

steven said...

ellen - i am amazed at their ability to appear and spread and reconstitute decaying matter into something the planet can use again. steven

steven said...

hope when i saw them i thought of little suns - like the ones in medieval illustrations with rays of blue and gold. steven

Everyday Goddess said...

Fascinating! I have never seen anything like them, thanks for featuring what beauty lies outside the tent!

I gave you one of my weekly Goddess Awards that you can pick up at my place if you like.

Visiting from The Goddess. Your photo is gorgeous. I have recently started using our camera, and I hope that some day I will be as good as you.

Those are really unusual mushrooms! Great shot. Came to visit from the Everyday Goddess. Hope you find time to pay a return visit.
